Vijay Sethupathi not in The Family Man 3

News portals are going ballistic  over  speculative reports  of Tamil Superstar Vijay Sethupathi  co-starring with Manoj Bajpai in the   third season of The Family Man.

However  a bit of probing revealed  this to be fakenews.

When I touched base with  Vijay Sethupathi  he very categorically denied being any part  of Family Man 3.

“I am  only doing Raj and DK’s  webseries with Shahid Kapoor.  I haven’t been  offered any series  or film with Manoj Bajpai  though I’d  love to work with him,” say  Vijay who is currently  busy shooting for Masterchef  in  Tamil.

As  for The Family Man season  3  , sources close to the Franchise say  there is no sign of any  script or even a  script idea.

“The  project(Season 3) is all  in the minds  of the  Franchise’s fans who are  not  only thinking  up  plots for Season 3  but even choosing   a cast for  it,” says  a source  from  the Family Man team.
